Turkish website named most-visited bus ticket platform globally

Firm aims to expand operations worldwide by launching multilingual website, adding new services

A Turkiye-based online bus ticket booking platform was named the most-visited such website in the world, attracting around 15 million online visitors last month, the firm said in a statement on Wednesday.

The firm, Obilet, is also one of the top 10 most visited ticketing companies including flight, train, and all-in-one ticket providers globally, according to data from website traffic tracker SimilarWeb.

Obilet’s CEO Yigit Gurocak said the firm, founded in 2012, sought not only to hold its position as a leader in the sector, but also to get a place among the top five companies globally.

Stressing that Obilet is a leader in its field domestically, he said the firm is launching a multilingual website in a couple of months to sell bus tickets all over the world.

“Besides, we will have introduced our hotel booking and car rentals categories by the end of spring this year, as well,” he added.

With its 250-person team, Obilet is a platform on which today, hundreds of transportation companies sell their tickets.

It had previously been named by financial advisory firm Deloitte one of the fastest-growing tech start-ups in Turkiye.
